Gonzalez allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Cubs. Gonzalez continues to pitch well, as Monday's outing extended his quality start streak to five. Unfortunately, his club hasn't helped him out, and he is just 1-2 in those five starts. His eight strikeouts tied a season high set back on May 21 against Kansas City. Gonzalez's control has been excellent of late -- he hasn't walked more than two batters in his quality start streak, and that has been the main driver behind his success.
Gonzalez (2-5) pitched six quality innings, allowing three runs, four hits and two walks while striking out five against the Mariners on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision. After a disastrous series of outings in late June, the 32-year-old has gotten back on track with four consecutive quality starts. During the run, Gonzalez has managed an attractive 2.77 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. Unfortunately, he only has one win to show for it, but the Sox have been blanked in three of his last four starts. He's scheduled to take the hill for his next start Monday against the Cubs.
Gonzalez was a tough-luck loser Friday versus the Angels, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk across six innings while striking out six. Gonzalez limited baserunners and kept his team in the game with the quality start, but the bullpen blew any chance for Chicago to come back by allowing five runs in three innings of work. Gonzalez has now turned in three consecutive quality starts and has lowered his season ERA to 4.28. He will look to continue his recent success Wednesday versus the Mariners.
Gonzalez (2-4) allowed no runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three over seven innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Yankees. Gonzalez kept the Yankees' bats silenced while the offense scored four times in the second inning to help him earn his second win of the year. This was the first time since joining the White Sox that he's posted back-to-back quality starts, and his ERA has dropped from 5.17 to 4.39 with those solid performances. His next start will be after the All-Star break.
Gonzalez (1-4) allowed three runs, two of which were earned, on three hits and two walks while striking out four over seven innings to take the loss Friday at the Astros. Gonzalez held the Astros to one run through six innings before giving up a two-run homer to Carlos Gomez in the seventh inning, and the White Sox offense was unable to provide him with any run support. He's now dropped three straight decisions, and his ERA is at 4.88 on the season. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Yankees.
